BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Good news for dog lovers: the city of Boston is working on finding more space for your canine companions to frolic freely.
A representative from the city's Parks and Recreation Department said in a meeting last Thursday that officials are working towards putting a dog park in every neighborhood.
Richard, a dog owner from Jamaica Plain, said the effort is good news for his dog Huxley.
"Yeah there's no dog park in Jamaica Plain," he said. "But he loves to mix it up with the other dogs and play."
Rene, a dog owner from the South End, also cheered the news for her and her dog Aubrey.
"I think it's important to be able to have somewhere to just get out of the house for a little bit, especially with the pandemic," she said. "[Aubrey] would prefer grass, so if we could put grass in here that would be cool."
As for a timeline for when the dog parks will be installed, there is no information yet on when city officials will be able to complete their goal.
